Nice instructable!The edges never will be perfect. The solution is simple - add 2.5 to 5 mm to each side of the copper board around the printed area. After etching remove (cut or sand) the excess.

It is more easy as you think. Well, you have to learn some 3D software, but there are many free of them (say Fusion 360 for hobbyists and startups, or FreeCAD, just Google for free 3D design software) and it is a real joy to learn and draw. Then, you can draw everything and step-by-step remove only one part and render each step in reverse order. Some things you have to show not as it will be done in reality - because sometimes it is more important to show from where to where lead a cable, than its actual shape, for example. In this instructable see the cables for the fan switch. Nobody will make them so straight.
I can send you a lot of 3D models of electronic components in DWG (or DXF) format, you can easily transform them to 3DS Max files.
So you can make perfect Instructables! I am very impressed by the materials in 3DS Max and what the young designers can do with them. They taught me how to make an old car's headlight material. Here is the result:
Retro Prototyping, Great for Teaching
The 7812 powers the AV-meter, the 12V fan and the LED fan indicator. The maximum power dissipation of the small package 7812 is 800 mW. I have 19 V input, so the voltage drop to 12V is 7V. If my fan is 40 mA, the LED - 10 mA, and the AV-meter - 20 mA, I will have 70 mA consumption, 70 * 7 = 490 mW heat on 7812. So small package is OK. But if my fan is 100 mA, I will need the bigger package. And if I have a 24V input (there are good 110/240V AC-DC 24V converters) I will need the bigger package for sure.
